Master of Horror John Carpenter is back. Having taken an extended break after 2001's Ghosts of Mars because he felt "fed up with the movie business," the director or horror classics like 1978's Halloween and 1980's The Fog has returned with The Ward, a low-budget ghost movie that stars Amber Heard (Drive Angry) as a psychiatric patient locked in a mental institution who discovers something is stalking the halls and taking out the other patients.
Carpenter is no stranger to small budgets, and working on The Ward and its $10 million budget has seemed to re-energized Carpenter, with the director linked to several upcoming projects, such as an adaptation of the comic book Darkchylde and an adaptation of the novel Fangland.
In a conversation with MSN, Carpenter revealed making movies is the same no matter what budget you are able to get. carpenter talks remakes >>
